Spaghetti squash with meatballs marinara

Makes 6 servings


  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 lb. turkey sausage
  • 1 jar marinara sauce
  • Parmesan cheese, optional


Preheat oven to 400°F. Fill 9x13 pan with about one inch of water.

Using caution, cut ends off spaghetti squash. Stand squash on flat end and cut in half. Use spoon to remove seeds and pulp. Place face down in baking pan. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until squash easily separates with a fork.

Meanwhile, make meatballs out of turkey sausage. Fry until cooked. Heat marinara sauce.

When squash is cooked, remove from oven and carefully flip face up to cool slightly. Scoop spaghetti squash onto plates. Top with hot marinara sauce and meatballs. Sprinkle with cheese if desired. Serve with garlic toast.
